Woof Wear Medical Hoof Boot a unique close fitting hoof boot designed to keep wounds, poultices and dressings clean. This boot is suitable for use in the stable and can be used on sensible horses in the paddock. The boot is designed using flexible and light materials to enable easy fitting and as a cost effective alternative to adhesive bandage and tape. The boot is not indestructible and so is not guaranteed against breakage, due to the horse standing on the boot. Featuring a grooved sole for extra grip and a Kevlar® interior for durability it also has an asymmetric zip to give the boot a really close fit (and prevent it opening) stopping bedding and other debris from getting inside.

Use the size guide to ensure you have the closest fit for your horse or pony. Note – If your horse has specialist or remedial shoes, or large shoes such as Eggbars or Heartbars, you may need to go up a size to accommodate these. We recommend working with your farrier to ensure you get the most applicable size for your horse.
If it is your intention to use on both front, or hind feet, and your horse is particularly ‘active’ or a bit close in his action, the risk of standing on the boot with the opposite foot is higher due to the decreased distance between the two feet. In this case you can use an overreach boot over the top of the Medical Hoof Boot to protect it.
Featuring a grooved sole for extra grip and a Kevlar® interior for durability it also has an asymmetric zip to give the boot a really close fit (and prevent it opening) stopping bedding and other debris from getting inside.
Available in 10 different sizes, (please click on the fitting and sizing tabs above for more details) the boot is designed for use with or without a shoe. It can assist in a number of ailments to the foot such as abscesses, punctured sole or bruised sole.
To get the best out of your Medical Hoof Boot:
Do not use the Medical Hoof Boot in place of an overreach boot to prevent shoe loss. The MHB is not designed for this application and will not protect against overreaching.
If your horse is inclined to overreach, or stands on its own hooves, then an overreach boot should be used over the MHB to protect both the horse and the MHB from damage.
- Measure, Measure, Measure…
The Medical Hoof Boot is designed to be a snug fit so it doesn’t fall off. If you do not measure accurately or buy a size too big it can result in damage to the MHB due to the boot being trodden on by the other foot.
i) Measure width carefully before bandaging, with or without shoe
ii) Choose size per guide (don’t go to next size up)
iii) No need to add extra for dressings
